Anniversary parties demand attention to detail. It's not enough to throw a covering over a table and call it good. Take the time to do it right with table skirts and table covers. Table skirts can be paper,plastic, or even fabric. They hide ugly folding table legs as well as provide a useful hidden place to stash extra party supplies.
Table decorations are one of the most versatile parts of decorating for special events. Change the table covering and table skirt and you have a new canvas on which to create. Is this a golden anniversary being celebrated? Gold tableware atop a table covered in white satin with an overlay of gold metallic gossamer is striking. The same can be done for silver anniversaries. Simply use silver tableware atop a table covered in black satin draped with silver metallic gossamer and have the contrasting chair bows be in white gossamer or silver glitter taffeta.
